StudySync’s Blast feature offers a real-world, read-write connection for students, giving them the opportunity to share their opinions on a variety of topics. You’ll be able to help students answer the question, What’s happening in the world today? and learn about what your students think about those current events.
Blasts are one of the many resources offered within StudySync’s award-winning core ELA curriculum. Designed for grades 6-12, they include short reading and writing assignments based on timely, high-interest topics. Students respond in short answer format, participating in thoughtful discussion with other students across the globe.
